Easy to build record cabinet NAME ADDRESS (Leth.) At first glance this very leresting duplex looks like modern Ranch home. Acluall I it is an Income Home with tw I practically identical Units Each has its own basemen with direct entrance from out side, and two separate fron I doors. Would make an ideal re j tirement home where a littli extra rental income would bt useful. While no garages are in I eluded, a two car unit could easily be added as indicated b. the dotted lines. Note that iii this case, the end windows as shown on the illustration woulc be eliminated (see Floor Plan) The Design is very suitable lot electric healing. By Isabella R, Young, F.R.H.S, r'ONTIiVUING on from last wee k, another popular plant is Rhododendron indicum or Azalea indica. These beauti- ful, slirubby house or green- house plants burst into bloom around the holiday season in many lovely colors. Filtered sunlight and a cool tempera- ture of around 55 to 60 degrees F. suits them ideally. Too high a temperature means too little bloom. Azaleas are very thirsty plants and sometimes require several waterings a day. A plant to rot. Gradually de- crease the amount of watei given until the leaves have dried up and the plant is in resting stage. Put in a cool basement and water just enough to prevent shrivelling. During the end of August or beginning of September bring to the light and repot in a mix- ture of three parts loam, one part sand and one part peat moss, with the addition of some charcoal and bonemeal. Set the corm so it is one-half thorough soaking once a week exposed and for best results in a pan or the sink will ensure that all feeder roots are moist- ened. When flowering has ceased repot in a mixture of equal parts of loam and peat moss, adding a little sand for better drainage. Keep in lots of light at a temperature of 45 to 50 degrees F. applying water only keep potbound. The potted chrysanthemum probably requires less care than the other plants mention- ed. Chrysanthemums require good light, cool conditions and under watering, rather than overwatering. As long as wilt- tag doesn't occur the plant is receiving sufficient moisture. when the soU becomes dry. two different types light misting over daily isjof chrysanthemums the beneficial. When all danger i greenhouse and the hardy, out- frost is over, set pot and all i door vanetJ'. The latter, if envelope to Mrs. f. R. Young, tile 'all. Greenhouse mums, af- ter flowering, are cut down t three inches and then given only sufficient moisture to keep them from drying out. Fertilize once a month. As soon as frost has passed sink the pot in the garden in a protected place, watering when required. Bring in before a frost and put in a sunny window. Fertilize as soon as the buds start to show. Mrs. J. My Rubber Plant is getting so tall. Would it be possible to cut the top off? Ans. Your Rubber Plant will branch out if the top is cut off. You could spray each leaf joint with Gibrel to help the new shoots come out. At this time I would like to wish all readers of this col- nnn, my friends and fellow gardeners a very Merry Christ- "nas. All questions should be sent with self-addressed, stamped Everyone who enjoys records will appreciate the convenience of this easy to build cabinet. While compact in size, it pro- vides an unusual amount of storage space for 7, 10, and 12" records. This sliding door cabinet is unique in that it can be built from one of the very newest materials, a handsome easy to work hardboard made of com- pressed wood chips. Whether painted lo match trim in room, or stained lo blend with other furniture, the material is easy to finish and requires nothing more than occasional waxing and polishing. The cabinet stands 33'' high. 14" deep, and 24" wide. It can be made at home at about one- fourth the price if purchased ready-made. To save time and money, the pattern contains a shopping list of materials that tells what to buy and where each is used. Assembly i n s fractions are clearly written so the amateur can do the job with no previous woodworking c x p c r i e nee. While only the simplest of tools are needed this is the kind of cabinet work that develops a real interest in power tools. An electric hand or table saw per- mits assembling this project in I one evening. i The cabinet illustrated is one I of over 300 attractive items j you can make in your spare 1 time. Doing it yourself not only saves money which can be spent on a vacation or other essential needs, but also pro- vides a hobby that's top rate entertainment.

A pool table is the centre of attraction here. Jf a large party is planned the ping-pong table can be fold- ed up and additional chairs brought in for guests. An informal decor was es- tablished by combining light and dark panelling. The lighter tone was used in the main area of the hasement, the darker tone in I he adult area around the pool table.
